This bushing registers within the soft durometer bushing range and are for are for light-weight (under 75lbs) riders and those looking for a loose setup in the roadside position. Please keep in mind, that WFB bushings ride a couple of points softer than they test.
This WFB compound has a unique lubrication added that does not bond with the urethane which is why you will often see a white residue on the surface. This compound offers reduced bushing friction for fast transitions and a deeper lean than the APS. WFB will turn 15% to 20% more than the same durometer of other brands. WFB also offers lower rebound than APS and is designed for the rider that wants a very fluid response.
Truly the bushing of choice for the more experienced rider that wants to control their bushings instead of the bushings controlling them. Like APS, the WFB compound does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug. We recommend tightening to the point where it is difficult to turn the bushing in the bushing seat by hand.
